snow, maybe

this morning when i raised myself from my bed i looked out the window, after an incredibly windy night a thin layer of snow had fallen barely covering the grass. Living here on the hill, knowing that last year's 'snow broke many records, i was beginning to wonder if last years snow accidentally stole this years fall. once i knew all the animals were well fed, i grabbed my camera, knowing that the warm temperature would soon take the very little we have. i walked a short distance into the forest when it began to rain. i took a few shots here and there but then i got distracted by green moss on tree trunks and from there i started noticing all the different texture of every tree, everyone wearing it's own distinctive design.  i came in to post photographs and when i looked out a few minutes ago  a full blown snow storm was on it's way which makes me very happy ( tiny nervous when you live alone in place so secluded from anyone else) but mostly excited to know that there is chance that by this afternoon i could dust of my snow shoes, take my camera and just maybe capture some real winter photographs. 

so now i will leave you with my view as i sit here at the dining table; there is the tiniest of snowflakes falling by the millions, big thick clouds feel as is they can replace the ceiling of my house and yours, somewhere in between layers of white cotton like clouds there is the sun who seems to be promising a visit. wait has the snow stopped, no not exactly. the snow flakes  are bigger now and you feel as if you might be able to count them, you stare at the basket holding your snow shoes and say maybe another time. the sun makes it through the sky's cotton fields.  you pick up madame bovary and curl up on the chaise with your feet tucked under a folded blanket and open up where you left of determined to get lost in it's pages, determined to make it to the back cover today, at least that is what you promise yourself.

thanks to tj of humble origins for giving me this link i can make snow flakes all day! - you should try it!

...I love the new header. :o)

...Your photos are beautiful as are your surroundings. We have had very little snow here, as a matter of fact as I am typing the wind is whipping about outside blowing some snow in, but not much. Not enough to satisfy me tho'. I love snow. I love Winter.

...Did you know there's a website where you can make your own Snowflakes? Here's the link:

...I apologize if I have ever come off as envious in any way here. It is a dream of mine to live on a farm in Vermont. Nothing more, nothing less. I love your photography and your words that grace them, you have a lovely place here.

...My fav' line: "...big thick clouds feel as is they can replace the ceiling of my house and yours, somewhere in between layers of white cotton like clouds there is the sun who seems to be promising a visit. wait has the snow stopped, no not exactly." *sigh* :o)

...Peace & Blessings :o)

Oh, such beauty calms the soul! Your day sounds heavenly. A mild winter here on the west coast…cold nights, frosty morns and brilliant sunny days. Your new photo is lovely! Peace.

Thank you.

Snow is beautiful. Especially the light, fluffy.. not heavy to shovel kind! I miss it.. having grown up in ME and now living in OR. I've become (unexpectedly) attached to Pac NW greenness though.. :) And bwt.. i love your new header! Why do you no longer have your lovely red piano?

Magdalena said...

snow, definitely!

There were a few snow storms around Christmas where I live, but since then..no snow. I'm planing a little trip up to the mountains this weekend and hope to take some beautiful photos, like you did.

Have a nice weekend!

This year here in Italy it hasn't snowed yet. I miss that silence of things covered in white and peace.

I love the new header, Nadia.

I confess to reading somewhere on your blog about raindrops on a window, which has just inspired the beginning of something new for my own. I can't remember where I spotted it though, as I was wondering out of order through lots of inspiring posts, one after another, after another.

your photos are so beautiful. All the snow I've been longing for. Last night we had rain, and it makes me sad, but I love seeing your snow. the photos capture the real feeling of what it is to be in Vermont.
